Note: Frank Laughlin Wilson was born January 1, 1880. He was a very hard working man all his life. Even after he sold his partnership in the Delta Packing Company in Clarksdale, MS, he found it impossible to retire and took a job as a bank teller for a time. He was known as "Bigdaddy" to the family. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved to go 'coon hunting with some of his friends. He had two coon dogs named Belle and Queen. While in the woods with the dogs, Bigdaddy could tell by their baying whether the dogs were on the trail of a racoon, a mink, or some other animal. He often took his grandson, Sam, son of his daughter, Floy, hunting and fishing. Bigdaddy gave financial help to his daughter, Floy, upon the loss of her husband, Samuel Lamaster Kibler, so she could attend Medical Technician school to suppore her three children. Bigdaddy also gave financial assistance for his son, Harry, to attend medical school and become a doctor. Bigdaddy lost his beloved wife, Lottie, (Bigmama) July 1, 1956. She died while they were in Memphis attending the funeral of Lottie's sister, Suzie. Bigdaddy soon sold the house in Clarksdale and moved back to Memphis. He lived, at various times, with his sister, Erma, (Bigsister) on the farm in Oakland, TN, with his son, Harry, and his daughter, Floy. He liked it best on the Oakland farm, because it was where he was born. He also liked to keep busy by working in the vegetable garden. Erma's husband, Dr. Louis D. McAuley died in 1963, and Bigdaddy was good company for her and she for him. Bigdaddy died just eight days after his 99th birthday, January 9, 1979.
